We’re one away from the big 4-0! In this episode of the Last Man Up podcast, the guys talk Cardinals baseball. Who is the 1980s equivalent of Matt Carpenter? Where does Manny Machado fit in the Cards lineup?
NFL reporter Benjamin Allbright (http://twitter.com/allbrightnfl@allbrightnfl) joins the show to break down conference championship weekend. He also touches on a Tweet he sent out back in November about how St. Louis should pitch the Spannos family to bring the Chargers home to St. Louis.
As usual, the show wraps with Andy regurgitating Awful Announcing’s Top 5 Hot Takes of the Week … Matt and Clay break down the ridiculousness.
Be sure to hang around and listen to the end for a great story from Ben Allbright that he had about Mark Morrison of Return of the Mack fame.
We spend the first few minutes of the show reminiscing about Friend of the Show “Mean Gene” Okerlund. Always a great interview, Mr. Okerlund as Matt Berger liked to refer to him as, always had great stories to tell about his life in professional wrestling.
Rene Knott, host of the Today in St. Louis on 5 On Your Side/KSDK in St. Louis joins the show to talk college football and MLB Hot Stove league action. We also get a little into new St. Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell, and what he’s been up his first couple days in office.
We wrap up the show with a look ahead at the NFL Playoffs. Andy interrupts the closing of the show with breaking news that the Kansas City Chiefs could lose their first-round bye this weekend in true Chiefs postseason fashion.
Old friends Andy Hanselman and Matt Berra join forces with John “Alpena” Sandner to bring you St. Louis Happy Hour (which coincidentally is not a copy of Joey Hams’ radio program). Come on in. The drinks are cold, and the water’s warm.
On Wednesday, the St. Louis Cardinals made a blockbuster trade acquiring Paul Goldschmidt from the Arizona Diamondback. The guys give their takes, and Craig Edwards (@craigjedwards) joins the show to discuss his thoughts on the Goldschmidt trade … what it means for the Cardinals during the Hot Stove season, and what it means during the season.
Post Dispatch reporter David Hunn (@davidhunn) also joined the show to discuss the MLS and the NFL lawsuits with the guys.
The guys also break down the XFL coming to St. Louis and new Mizzou quarterback Kelly Bryant.
We had our very own edition of Ladies’ Night on the Last Man Up podcast on our most recent episode.
Hanna Yates (@hannaraeyates) joined the guys to discuss the Blues season so far … the firing of Mike Yeo … is there a problem in the clubhouse … and is Coach Q coming home to St. Louis?
Former Oakland Raiders CEO and current host of That Other Pregame Show on the CBS Sports Network Amy Trask (@amytrask) hopped on with the guys for a few minutes to talk about the current state of the NFL.
Of course, we have our usual break down of college football and the Cardinals hot stove action. Clay is wrong and thinks the SEC Championship game is important.
Andy give his Top 5 Hot Takes of the week courtesy of the folks over at Awful Announcing.
It’s our last episode before Thanksgiving. We open the show talking about different TV shows. We break out into some Missouri Football talk and Cardinals Hot Stove league action.
T.J. Walker of Kentucky Sports Radio (@tjwalkerKSR) joins the program to discuss the upcoming college basketball season.
We wrap the show with the Top 5 hot sports takes of the week. Berger lives by the creedo that baseball is an individual sport masquerading itself as a team sport. Find out which baseball genius might actually agree with him!
